Chief Officer Field Training Academy

The Chief Officer Field Training Academy is the newest program from Chiefs Lasky and Salka. Departments that utilize the services of a shift commander, battalion chief, district chief, or other chief level officer in the field have a distinct advantage over departments that do not.
With over 80 years of combined fire service experience in both volunteer and career departments, in every rank from a junior company officer to captain, battalion chief, assistant chief, and chief of the department, Chiefs Lasky and Salka will walk you through the numerous vital skills and abilities that field officers need to be successful.
This program is a detailed guide, put together by Chiefs Lasky and Salka, for field chiefs to follow from their first hour in the firehouse to their last assignment of the shift.
